Iglesias And Tigers Agree On One-Year Deal

Jose Iglesias
Former Red Sox shortstop Jose Iglesias has agreed to a one-year, $1.65 million deal with the Detroit Tigers. The 24-year old Cuban had signed a four-year pact with the Red Sox back in 2010 for $8.25 million. Iglesias was dealt to the Tabbys last July in a three-team swap that brought Jake Peavy to Boston. Iglesias hit a surprising .330 in the first half for Boston, and finished second in the Rookie Of The Year balloting behind Wil Myers of Tampa. The slick-fielding shortstop was named FenwayNation's 2013 Red Sox Rookie Of The Year.
